Or the technology is being developed for people who weren't born blind but become blind later.

Or it makes the ecco location sharper

Yes, that's exactly right.

I remember watching a documentary about blind people riding bikes and such by using echolocation.  I can't remember the details, but they mainly used hand-held clickers so they wouldn't have to occupy their mouths and could tell if they were near an object or not.  With a bit of familiarity with the area and common sense they could identify trees, walls, bushes, people and such.

It's probably some genetic remnant our bodies have kept just in case we ever need to use it again.
